Can I Cut Grass in Winter?

Grass still grows when the temperature is above 5 degrees Celsius, so if your average temperature is above this, grass still grows.

So, if the temperature is below this, on average, then do not cut BUT if the neighbour’s lawn looks better than yours, or you are trying to sell your property or even worse and the relatives are coming… then as long as it isn’t frosty, you can use your mower, on a HIGH setting to trim the grass.

If the temperature is above 5 degrees, then its fine to give the grass a little haircut, set the mower on a HIGH setting, and cut the lawn.
